To begin, the owner Justine was very friendly and helpful in correspondence prior to our break. She answered any questions we had and gave detailed instruction on how to get there etc.
The cottage itself is set in a beautiful location. You reach it down a lane and through a farm...once the other side you reach the cottage behind some tree's and its just a clear open view of fields and the mountain scenery beyond. The house (and the hot tub) are perfectly positioned to make the most of the amazing view.
The house sleeps 6 and is a lovely size for 6, you would never be on top of each other, there are 3 reception rooms to lounge in and two bathrooms. The rooms are finished really well in a comfortable but modern/luxury style. It was spotless-ly clean
It is about a 10 minute drive to Aviemore where there are a few restaurants, shops and a handy tesco.
It was a great holiday, we were never had to go far for something to do. We would certainly return and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Aviemore area.
What can we say - excellent cottage fantastic location. We visited for 1 week and wanted to stay for 2 weeks!! Chelsea our dog loved it, such a beautiful location - highly recommend.
This Lodge is in a fabulous location! If you love the outdoors and star gazing, this place is for you. We've just spent 5 nights here, just the two of us with the dog. Despite the fabulous upstairs bedrooms and bathroom, we didn't even need to use them as we had everything we needed downstairs. It was like a home from home. The furnishings were amazing and so we didn't want to venture out every day, but spent time in the garden and in the conservatory. The spa was definitely an added bonus too. The dog was completely enclosed in and so it felt safe for her. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back!
The Lodge was amazing - even better than the photos!
Lovely location with great places to visit and fab walks
Would thoroughly recommend
We stayed here for a long weekend recently with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren to celebrate my birthday and our 44th wedding anniversary and had an amazing time. The cottage is charming, very large and very comfortable and the rooms are just as shown in the photos! There was nothing we could have wished for – every single item has been thought out very carefully to enable visitors to enjoy their stay. The kitchen is very modern and fully equipped and even has an oil fired stove should you require extra cooking facilities – I can just imagine what it would be like to spend Christmas there with a very large dining table and a traditional Christmas dinner laid out!
The very private hot tub is fantastic and despite the very cold temperatures when we were there it was put to good use and we had a lot of fun! The views from the lodge are wonderful and the sheep grazing in the field next to the lodge were an added bonus, especially for our 5 year old grandson.
I could write many, many, more good things about staying here but will just say that we all loved it and would highly recommend it to everyone.
